DANIEL, LOGAN, Editor.
FRIDAY, DEO. 1, 18.
At the special pession of tlio
Legislature in ISflo, it will be ro
inotubered, a bill wn paHsed to pro
hibit foot-binding in these islands.
Tlio net proved in tlio attempt to
operate it null and void owing
to its looso wording. There was
n lot of nonsense spoken and
piiutod when tlio bill was pend
ing, about social practices among
other nationalities alleged to bo
almost, if not wholly, as
pernicious as this 0110 pecu
liar to tlio Chinese. Apart
from tlio soundness of tlio old
pain excruciating as evidenc
ed by tho anguished out
cries of tho subjects, but the fact
that the-o are helpless littlo girls
makes tho practice moat emphati
cally outragoous. It ought to bo
provontiblo iii this country uuder
the law of assault and battel v
without special legislation. Tho
gratifying intelligence now
conies from China of an inlluen
tial native movomeut for the abo
lition of foot bindiug. Particulais
are communicated to the Shanghai
Ileu-ui by Alicia Bewicko Lit
tle, organizing secretary of a for
eign women's society formed
eighteen months ago to combat
'"the tliousutid-yeiir-old custom of
foot lui.diug." TliH lady relates
how tlio unexpected has happen
ed, in the co operation of a com
bination of the Chinese literati. It
is all tho woro romarkablo when
this class has beeu held to havo
been the particular enemies of
progivt,3. Tho walls of the cily
of Suilu had been placarded with
an nnli toot binding appeal, sign
ed by a Chinese univorsity honors
man and live other litorati.
'"How I should liko to call
them to act upon their own ap
peal,' was tho cynical foreign com
ment, again met by the informa
tion that thoir little daughters'
foc-t were already unbound, nud
they thomselves bound by n com
pact among one nnothor, that
wherever their daughtors should
marry the husband and his friends
should sign a paper agrcoing
that no children of tho marriage
should bo bouud. Cynicism stood
silent at tho iieB." Thus the se
cretin y writes and goes on to tell
how the leadots in the movement
have beeu hoiioted by their couu
trymou for thoir new dopai turo.
Tho movement is spreading nmong
tho b.uncd Chiucso of othor
cities, and it may well bo hoped
that tho barbarous practice will
before loug bo rolegated to tho
shades of unhappy reminiscences.

denied that Japan entertains any

her principal purpose being, it is
declared, to promote commercial
relations with that country. Yet
figures are given to show a falliug

timates that Japan has failed
through not mingling uweetuith

"Tho contention that a display of

TELESCOPE COFFEE POTS,
TEA STRAINERS AND
The Telescope Coffee
Pot is constructed with an
inner chamber extending one
sixteenth of an inch fiom the
bottom of the Pot, tints pre-
venmg any possioie escape
. t 1
or tne steam ana aroma.
The coffee used should be
ground very fine and placed in
the inner chamber. Pour boil
ing water over the coffee,
cover and allow to remain on
the stove six or seven minutes.
When the coffee is made, raise
the inner chamber and fasten
with the stt screw to strain.
The clear amber coffee remains
in tho Coffee Pot ready to serve.
The inner chamber may be
lifted out if desired.
POINTS OF EXCELLENCE
1. Economy It is a coffee
saver. In a short time it pays
2. By using finely ground
coffee you are enabled to ob
tain every particle of strength
contained in the coffee.
3. The cloth being stretched
tightly across the bottom of
the inner chamber to strain
the coffee, making a large flat
surface, the coffee is strained
.4. The cloth used on the
inner chamber being adjustable,
it is easy to remove.
. There is no place in the
inner chamber, Coffee Pol or
strainer to collect the sediment
that may make the coffee
6. There is no reason why
you should not make coffee
exactly alike J6J mornings in
the year, without the slightest
7. The coffee will keep hot
longer, because the Coffee Pot
consists of two thicknesses
instead of one.
8. You can make one cup of
coffee as well and as satis
factorily as a pot full.
9. The inner chamber may
be removed and washed, and
the clear strained coffee may
be saved for lunch.
10. By not subjecting the
Coffee Pot to extreme heat it
should last a lifetime.
